Fans Behaving Badly: Beer Tosser Went Too Far
Well, the answer to that question almost certainly has to be "yes." Just in case you haven't seen it yet, during last night's Phillies win over the Cubs, a Chicago fan tossed a beer directly on to Philadelphia center fielder Shane Victorino while he was trying to bring in a deep pop up.
It was a ludicrous moment, even for the Wrigley Field bleachers. And if that wasn't enough bad news for Wrigley officials, the whole incident got worse when security officers ejected the wrong fan. As The Sporting Blog's Dan Levy reported earlier today, complete with a pair of very, very close-up images, the wrong man was clearly tossed from a game in which the Cubs were already cooked.
Look, bad behavior in the Wrigley Field bleachers is nothing new. We've seen tons of beer pounding -- complete with bizarre tricks -- and plenty of fisticuffs. It was probably only a matter of time until something like this happened.
That being said, any fan tossing a beer on a player at any time, let alone while the ball is in play, deserves to be banned from the stadium for life. Or so I think. But you should have a voice in this, too, so let us know what you think should happen to the offender in question.
